CFD modeling of air penetration into the fuel supply pipeline


The article deals with the case of air into the fuel system piping. Different amount of air in the fuel system was simulated. The Euler method is used for modeling three component liquid (kerosene, kerosene and air, air). Calculation was focused on tracking the dynamics of the axial force acting on the rotor auger centrifugal stage. The calculation showed that the increasing of volume of gas lead to increases the amplitude fluctuations of axial force.
